The name Deborah in Hebrew means “bee”. What does that have to do with the first woman Judge? I’m not really sure – but I know what my husband says about me: “You never sit still – you’re always buzzing about like a bumble-bee!”
I was named by my parents in the mid 1950’s when Deborah was a popular name for movie stars and national celebrities. Only God knew at the time of my conception that I would one day call Him Lord and Savior. He alone knew the weight and significance of my name.
|"Deborah beneath the Palm Tree" |
by James J Tissot
Upon receiving her instructions from God, Deborah summoned Barak son of Abinoam and declared to him that indeed God had commanded him to, ‘Go, deploy the troops on Mount Tabor, and take with you 10,000 men from the Naphtalites and Zebulunites.’ He was to confront Jabin’s general, Sisera, who led an army made up of 900 iron chariots. She would lure Sisera to the River Kishon on the plains below the mountain, and thus Barak’s victory was assured according to God’s plan. He merely had to obey.
